About Us

We work in a team. We share ideas and are receptive to ideas. We are more hands-on than academic. We love to build things that we create. Studio for us was as much fun as working with brick and concrete or getting our hands soiled in the workshop. We have a way with machines. Our workplace is now a paperless studio. We love ideating on old newspapers or back of envelope sketches. We have 10 workstations and we are growing.
We produce strategy masterplans, product prototypes and designed spaces. The services we offer are:

Product / Industrial Design
Product Development and Design, Packaging, Prototyping, Engineering Drawings and Production. Our area of specialization includes Product Ergonomics, Interface Design, Mass Production Branding and Marketing Collaterals.

Built Environment - Architecture / Interior Design
We design buildings and the spaces enclosed within. Our Architecture and Interior Design services include, Design, Working Drawings, Realistic Renders, Animation, Material Selection and Site Supervision. We also undertake construction projects on turn-key basis.

Open Spaces - Landscape Architecture
We offer landscape development consultancy for projects of regional scale to that of public and personal use. Our Landscape development services include, Reagional Landscape development masterplans, Earthwork and layout, Planting Design schemes, Signage Schemes, Urban Outdoor Furniture, Kiosks and Bus Stop Shelters, Urban Lighting Schemes, Water Bodies, Fountains, irrigation plans, Waste Management and Landscape Conservation plans.

 

Design Methodology
Design is the strategy that lays the premise for the making of any object or system. The final product of this process can be anything from products to graphical user interfaces to buildings and open spaces. All design process at a fundamental level are similar. It involves a systematic approach in which art and the sciences come together towards achieving stated objectives. The thought process involved is rational as well as intuitive at the same time. However it requires skill, training, and exposure to channalize the thought process towards the stated objectives. Nature of the final object also involves the use of specific tools, technologies and resources.

This Design method can be developed into a systematic process, which includes identifying a need, defining the problem, conducting research,  analyzing design criteria, finding alternative solutions, analyzing possible solutions, making a decision, presenting the product, and communicating and selling the product. The steps involved in a typical design process are discussed below. This generic system can be applied with minor modifications for the design of any Product, Built Environment, or Open spaces.

Step one - Understanding the Need : Communication with all stakeholders of the project. Profiling the user community. Study of existing level of development and competition.
Step two - Resources and Ownership : Available resources . Ascertaining ownership boundaries, legalities, local laws and regulations.
Step three - Design brief : Statement of purpose and design objectives.
Step Four - Ergonomics : To maximize human efficiency. To improve health and safety. To promote comfort, convenience and interest. To maximize performance reliability. This generally
requires the study of systems in which humans, machines and the environment interact, with the aim of fitting the task to the humans. Anthropometrics is an important aspect of ergonomic studies which involves the study of human dimensions to ascertain size and space requirements.
Step Five - Environmental Impact : Environmental Impact profiling and Validation of sustainability issues.
Step Six - Design Ideation : Exploring more than one design idea. Presenting design concepts and communicating the idea.
Step Seven - Feedback, selection and improvement : Cristalization of the selected concept. Development and Articulation of the design in more detail.
Step Eight - Visualization, Prototyping : 3D Model and animation studies. Development of mock-up models and prototypes. Material, colour and finish studies.
Step Nine - Design improvement : Final validation of design concept before engineering resolution.
Step Ten- Engineering resolution and specifications : Engineering validation, manufacturing process selection, Material specifications, Colour specifications, finish specifications.
Step Eleven - Production details and manufacturing : CAD files, Working Drawings, Manufacturing Details and specifications, Material procurement, Mold making, Selection of agencies, Maufacturing, Mass production, finishing, product literature, user manual and Packaging.
Step Twelve - Marketing : Marketing collaterals, Product launch

 

Why Cluster One
The name was suggested by a friend, himself a music enthusiast and a creative person.
\'Cluster One\', the name is a tribute to the english rock band \'Pink Floyd\' that was formed when Syd Barrett joined \'The Tea Set\', a group that consisted of architecture students Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Bob Klose. After guitarist and singer David Gilmour joined the group and became an important member of the band, they achieved worldwide critical and commercial success with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and rock opera The Wall.
"Cluster One", an instrumental, is the first track on The Division Bell, the final studio album by Pink Floyd. It was never performed live by the band, though portions of it were included in the sound collage tape played before their 1994 concerts. Cluster One creative solutions pvt. ltd is a design firm started by a group of architects. We do not claim to adopt or practise, or hope to benefit in any manner, commercial or otherwise, from the traditions and legacy of \'Pink Floyd\'.
